I’ve been invited!

I’m so excited you guys – I’ve been invited!  My super awesome maid of honour and bridesmaid are planning my bridal shower.  The girls know that I love tea.  This is my shelf at work, full of a ridiculous amount of loose leaf tea.DSCN4917

I also love me a good afternoon tea!  We celebrated MOH-T’s birthday a few years ago (when she was prego with my niece) with afternoon tea at the Fairmont in Banff Springs.Banff Tea 001

And my mom and I got off a red eye flight and went straight to tea at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City a few years ago.Quebec City 08-08 008

The girls were savvy and knew that a tea themed bridal shower would be totally up my alley.  They were so creative with the invitations and I may have squealed as I opened it up.

And a tea bag inside with all of the details printed on its tag.  Seriously, how creative were the girls?  I absolutely love it.  Thanks ladies!!!

Time to find me a hat….I wonder if Kate Middleton has one she can lend me?

Were you bowled away by your bridal shower invite?

My shower was a surprise so I didn't see the invites, but I saw the Facebook group afterwards with all of their sneaky planning!!

Wow - snazzy invites! Sounds like a good excuse to DIY a ridiculousy fabulous tea hat with ribbons and feathers and bird cage lace and the whole nine yards!

Ha-ha Leana, Why did I think you didn't have a blog. At least I thought that is what you said. So much better to find out I am wrong. I need a favor. I can't find your Polyvore gor Style GeoInCalifornia for Spring. I know I get names mixed up sometimes. Perhaps that the problem. Polyvore names don't match real names, or blog names. I get so confused. Please email it again. In the mean time I will try to find you on polyvore.
